Oh good! I was hoping someone would!I'm a certified black-ops Navy SEAL Delta Force operator. Tell him to move that seat back up or he will be dead before the plane lands. I'm that good.
Observation about US airlines as opposed to foreign ones:
On my last trans atlantic journey on lufthansa I was literally being thrown against my seatbelt for a good portion of the flight from Greenland to the UK. Pilot never once turned on the seatbelt sign after getting to altitude.
An hour into this flight and the pilot has already turned it on three times for the most imperceptible amount of chop.
